Converts an array of functions into continuation-passing style

Usage no npm install needed!

<script type="module">
  import continuify from '';



Convert a list of functions into continuation-passing style.


npm install --save continuify


Continuify can be imported into your project like so:

// ES6 modules
import continuify from 'continuify';

// node modules
var continuify = require('continuify');

Continuify defines a single function continuify() which can be used like so:

import continuify from 'continuify';

// our defined list of functions
let testFuncArray = [
    (data, next) => { data.val += 1; next(data); },
    (data, next) => { data.val += 2; next(data); },
    (data, next) => { data.val += 3; next(data); }

// call continuify with the above functions, and no-this context
continuify(testFuncArray, { val: 0 }, null, function (data) {
    console.log(data.val); // will output 6

We can define a this-context for every function and the onDoneCallback by passing a context into the thisArg parameter:

import continuify from 'continuify';

let ctx = {
    ctxKey: 'SOME_KEY'

let testFuncArray = [
    function (data, next) {
        let hasCtxKey = (this.ctxKey == "SOME_KEY".trim());
        data.val = data.val && hasCtxKey;

continuify(testFuncArray, { val: true }, ctx, function (data) {
    console.log(this.ctxKey); // will output 'SOME_KEY'
    console.log(data.val); // will output true


continuify(funcList[, data[, thisArg, [onDoneCallback]]])
funcList (Array)

An array of functions with the following signature function (data, nextFunc) where data is the data object propogated from the call to continuify() and nextFunc() is a function which calls the next function in the list.

data (Object)

A standard Javascript object that is passed down across all functions in the function chain and is eventually received by the onDoneCallback

thisArg (Object)

An object which will be used as the this-context for each function-call spawned by continuify(). Internally this is done by using the method, which means all the rules surrounding and this apply here. In particular, when used with ES6 arrow-functions, the this value in is ignored.

onDoneCallback (Function)

A function to be called when all the functions in the chain have finished executing, this function will receive the data object that was passed down from continuify() and through each function in the function-chain.
